LOCATION: SALVATION ARMY, DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES
DESCRIPTION: Contestant will climb through tunnel while being sprayed with a high-pressure fire hose. As they make their way through the tunnel they will reach up and pull a rope which will lower a key while simultaneously dumping a 55gallon drum filled with one of three different gross fluids (rotten fish, fish oil and redworms & superworms) onto their heads. Once they have all three keys they will crawl to the end of the tunnel where they will use the keys to unlock a grate allowing them to escape.
